Wondering what’s best to cook for tea? This classy and chunky soup with tasty lime and chilli butter toppings will make your day right.


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 roughly chopped onions preferably large
  • 2 x 10 oz (280g) potatoes finely cubed
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 750 ml (24 fl oz) fish stock
  • 300 ml (10 fl oz) milk
  • 10 oz (280g) skinless salmon fillet
  • 150 ml (5 fl oz) single cream
  • chopped parsley or chives
  • salt and pepper

Lime and chilli butter Ingredients:

  • 1 red chilli preferably large, halved, deseeded and chopped
  • 3 oz (75g) butter
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • pepper


  • Preheat your cooker. For 5 minutes, heat oil in a frying pan, add onion and stir fry. Add potatoes and let cook for 3 minutes.
  • While potatoes are cooking, remove the tops from the fennel and reserve. Once you cut the vegetables in half, remove the core and finely chop them. Bring food to boil once you have added the fennel, salt and pepper, and stock in a frying pan.
  • Place the mixture in the slow cooker with a lid and let it cook for 2 ½ to 3 hours on low heat. While you are waiting, prepare the chilli butter. Chop the chilli and beat it into the butter with the lime rind and a sprinkle of pepper. Mix the lime juice slowly and cover it then chill.
  • Stir milk in the chowder then add the pieces of salmon. Cover food for 30 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, life the salmon out and place on a plate. Make salmon into flaky chunks and pieces by using a knife and fork. Be sure to remove any bones. Cook for 10 more minutes after you have placed the salmon back in the soup with herbs, fennel tops and cream.
  • Place chowder into individual bowls and pour spoonfuls of lime and chilli butter over it.
